This paper examines an international mixed model in which a domestic state-owned welfare-maximizing public firm competes against a foreign labor-managed income-per-worker-maximizing private firm. In the first stage, each firm independently decides whether or not to make a commitment to capacity. This capacity may subsequently be increased, but cannot be reduced. Hence, the firm's capacity cost is sunk and changes from a variable cost to a fixed cost. In the second stage, each firm independently chooses its actual output. The paper shows the equilibrium of the international mixed model.
